@Intermat: Wacker-Neuson Expanding Electric Range

There is little doubt that Germany’s Wacker Neuson is treating the upcoming Intermat construction equipment show in Paris as a coming out party for its new lines of electric-powered machines.

 The Munich-based manufacturer said it will make three announcements at Intermat, to be held April 24 through the 28th at the Parc des Expositions, Paris Nord Villepinte.

The first announcement was the launch of fully battery-powered mini excavator the model EZ17e. The company said the new model EZ17e is designed to perform and handle like a diesel-powered model.

The electric, zero-tail EZ17e mini excavator is the latest addition to the range and will be available in 2019. With its zero emissions series, the company said its strategy is to offer an alternative to conventional drives in each of its main product groups.

The EZ17e from Wacker Neuson can run entirely on its battery but can also be operated while connected to the main power – and even charged while in operation – thanks to a smart charging management system.

The EZ17e is powered by lithium-ion technology batteries, with Wacker Neuson said a fully electric excavator can to be operated for a complete working day. The battery can be charged overnight via a domestic socket (110-230 V), or in just four hours using a high-voltage current.

The second announcement is will be Wacker Neuson showcasing its battery-powered AP1850e vibratory plate. The AP1850e single-direction vibratory plate targeted for compacting granular surfaces and asphalt. With a modular design, the plate’s battery modules can also be used in Wacker Neuson’s battery-powered rammers, making this model even more flexible and cost effective. The AP1850e is available from all Wacker Neuson sales partners.

 The third announcement is forthcoming.
